The Police Federation has published a new set of pensions FAQs.
The Police Federation of England and Wales (PFEW) announced last Friday that it was launching a compensation claim against the Government on behalf of members who were victims of discrimination and suffered any ‘injury to feeling’ as a result of the changes to their pensions by the introduction of the 2015 scheme.
The Government has stated it will put right the pension losses suffered. The purpose of this claim is to ensure those who have not already submitted a claim in respect of the pension discrimination are also considered for any compensation the court considers appropriate for the distress caused by the discriminatory changes.
The Group Action is being handled on PFEW’s behalf by the leading UK and international law firm Penningtons Manches Cooper.
